This game is the perfect example of why you should do it as little as possible :/

Your opponent attacked wastelands... twice? And still won?
That was really bad luck. (I think it's funny, if you check the luck graphs, that your statistical luck wasn't much worse than his tough.)

@WL - And there was me thinking I'd done quite well by beating a top 10 player ;)

@MathWolf - I attacked wasteland twice for very good reason. One was on the edge of Antarctica and one was on the edge of Mexico, bother of which I thought WL was in and I was right about the second one.

When you're playing a good player (which WL Fanatic is!) the last thing they expect you to do is come through a wasteland and it always catches people off guard because they think they're safe there. I've won many games after doing that.

the main problem with attacking a wasteland, is you might be providing another border with the opponent, but unless you have a sizable income advantage, you caused it at a considerable loss to yourself.. 7 armies is considerable in many games.

That's kinda shitty playing from both sides. ;-)
BTW. He's not even in top 20. ;-)

Well you call it shitty play if you want, but I just won another game by surprising my opponent by coming through a wasteland. He came straight on the chat and told me he wasn't expecting it and that he was about to surrender.

You to join the ladder, sir macelon?

Attacking from a 4 sure is risky, especially in a 75% luck game :). But attacking neutrals from a 5 or 6 or attacking a 1 from a 4 may not lead to success either.

Focus on Bulgaria and Greece, turns 1 to 9

Focus on Denmark, turns 1 to 7

Enjoy :)!

My humble efforts to take Portugal, Spain and Finland. Especially taking the last territory to get bonus seems to be a almost unsurmountable obstacle.

How about this one...

I put 5 armies in Antarctica on my first go and attacked with 3 in 3 different places. All of them failed to take the territory and in each case I lost 2 armies!

Wow! That is impressive. At least it wasn't in the ladder :)

0.0512% probability that this happens if I calculated correctly, so basically this will happen approximately once in every 2000 games.

I thought I was lucky to get 3/3 with 3v2, but my opponent was even better with 7/7, damn!
